Cherokee Nation Demands Scott Brown Apologize For 'Downright Racist' Taunts Are people really so stupid that they believe you can tell a person's lineage just by looking at someone? The night that Brown was elected, there was a man in the crowd who yelled something about sexually assaulting Martha Coakley. Instead of telling the man to cool it, he just laughed and nodded. At the time, I thought he would say something later. Disavow it in some way but he never did. That's when I knew the kind of man Brown is. Like Mitt, he'll say what he needs to in order to get elected. In contrast, remember when John McCain told the foolish woman that 'no, Obama is not an Arab'? Having lived in AZ for 25+ years, I'm no fan of Do Nothing McCain but at least he had the gumption and honor to call that the lie it is.
